CNSNews.com ^ | November 02, 2006 | Kevin Mooney

Posted on 11/02/2006 6:26:49 PM PST by wodinoneeye

(CNSNews.com) - While Soviet troops occupied Afghanistan in 1980, Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) worked in close concert with high level Kremlin officials to alter the direction of U.S. policy, according to documents made available through a KGB defector.

Details concerning Kennedy's correspondence with KGB agents are included in the writings of the late Vasiliy Mitrokhin who defected to Britain in 1992. The Mitrokhin papers highlight a meeting that took place at the behest of Kennedy between former Sen. John Tunney (D-Calif.) and KGB agents in Moscow on March 5, 1980.

Someone made fleeting reference to this on Special Report the other day, and I haven't heard anything since. They implied that Kennedy actively worked against Reagan's reelection in 1984 by offering the Soviets "talking points" on US Foreign Policy.

Serious charges against a sitting US Senator...

Note that the article is continued at the source, and should be consulted there.

This ties in with some posts here during the last week concerning Kennedy's dealings with the USSR during Reagan's presidency and on the possibility that Tunny was actually a KGB agent.

Unfortunately I don't recall the thread titles.

Well, I just did a keyword search for Tunney and turned up four more of them (not this one), but not the one I was thinking of. This obviously is a matter that deserves some study.

Seems to me that we "conspiracy theorists" have been saying this kind of stuff since the 1960s. It's a burden being proven right all the time. Anyone who read Gary Allen's "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" wouldn't be surprised at all.

I've got the Cape Cod Orka sighted-in on a whole different angle which we won't go into here, but on THIS issue…as much as it pains me to say it, I don't think this is an issue we want to press.

What we need is clarity. Are we being manipulated by selective use of the facts? Terrorism is terrorism, whether it's directed at us, or our adversary. Are your tax dollars being spent in accordance with your values?

"Any government that supports, protects or harbours terrorists is complicit in the murder of the innocent and equally guilty of terrorist crimes."

This is a very good read on the topic:
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3827/is_200312/ai_n9318614

an excerpt:
"Sen. Kennedy played a major role during the 1970s in Grafting the restrictions that made it so difficult for the FBI and CIA to do the job of protecting the American people. One of the most pernicious restrictions was the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) passed in 1978. President Franklin Roosevelt, in 1940, had ordered the FBI to wiretap Nazis and Communists because they were operating in the United States on behalf of hostile foreign powers. Every President after him used the inherent power of the President to order wiretapping for national security purposes.

Kennedy told the Senate Intelligence Committee in 1976 that "For the last five years, I and others in the Senate have labored unsuccessfully to place some meaningful statutory restrictions on the so-called inherent power of the Executive to engage in surveillance." When Congress discussed legislation to require a court warrant to wiretap enemy agents and terrorists, Kennedy and the ACLU began a campaign to raise the barriers as high as possible. Kennedy introduced the concept in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Bill that required evidence that someone was providing classified information to a foreign intelligence service. Someone who "only" had a clandestine relationship with a foreign intelligence officer and carried out covert influence operations for a foreign power could not be wiretapped. When we see the KGB reports we can understand why Kennedy would want this provision in the law. Kennedy was not a KGB agent. He also was not "a useful idiot" who was used by the KGB without understanding what he was doing. Kennedy was a collaborationist. He aided the KGB for his own political purposes."

Very much as dear Theodore claimed about Abu Garib

early 80's, reopened under a new co-management.
Hope this can be made to stick. His father's fruit

old man Joe, Teddy seemed to be looking for gangster-
like thugs to help him out with his career....JJ61

I remember how closely the late "Moscow Mary" McCrory followed Ted's bid for the Democrat Party nomination for POTUS back in 1980. She actually thought that Kennedy had some sort of chance. Now we hear that Ted has been much more of a traitor to his own country than even I thought he was. I am plainly shocked, and amazed. What next? Will we find out that Bill Clinton sold nuclear secrets to the Chinese in exchange for campaign cash? Oh yeah, we already know that.

Frankly, I think ol' Ted has got some splainin ta do.

In addition to treason,I believe U. S. law prohibits a member of Congress personally to negotiate with a foreign government in such a manner. However, this would not be the only law that does not apply to left wingers.
It also was illegal for Jimmy, the Inept, to negotiate on his personal initiative an agreement with the dictator of North Korea. That agreement should have been ignored by Clinton, but possibly he was distracted by that blue dress.
